2:21am
you know, so it was a lot. i'm glad to slow it down a bit. >> that's the irony, isn't it, you get into acting because you want to play different roles, then you're in a hit series, playing the same character, at the same time you're in a hit so you have all that security but you have no other life. about 16 hours a day or something, isn't it? >> i think if you don't have kids and you're younger, it's great. you can just collapse on your days off and rest. >> no collapsing. >> eva was on a plane every other minute, but i wouldn't trade it. >> she still is. she's living a good life right now. >> you've been sinking your time and energies into this terrific organization that touches so close to your heart, doesn't it? >> the organization is called plan usa. i sponsored a child with them years and years ago and did a public service announcement for them. i said nobody knows about them. i would be happy to help you in any way i can, but not until the show's over. >> you knew what the commitment would be.

from everyone. but you can't hide it when your hair false out. everyone knows. >> you loved your -- >> i had long hair, loved my hair, it was a security blanket of sorts. so losing it and not having a choice in the matter or say in yes, i want to get it cut short, no, i don't, it was tough. it was hard to do that. >> you were blogging about it growing back, which is a nice way of it healing too. >> it's beautiful. >> thank you. it was what i was dreading most. i started a blog to take pictures every week to show myself i was making progress and my hair was coming back. it's helped tremendously. i can look back, even now i feel my hair is stuck and not growing, i can look back, oh, wow, it's grown quite a bit. >> i bet you've probably learned through the whole thing your hair doesn't define you, your character does. >> exactly. my hair does not define me. i've learned through the whole cancer experience, i have such a great support system and friends and family that love and support me through everything. >> james, it must be great to meet all these terrific women, huh? >> it really is fantastic. that's what my sister-in-law
2:44am
found, the more you talk about it, there used to be a stigma of losing your hair, wearing a scarf and made them feel less than. but the more you talk about it, people see it as a badge of honor. and they pull for you, know you're fighting the fight. the more people talk about it, the more likely they are to get treatment and educated. >> the more you feel you're not alone. >> did your mom pass from breast cancer ten years ago? >> perfect example of somebody who didn't know. it was fear for her. she was really intelligent. had her master's from vanderbilt. she wasn't somebody who didn't know things, but cancer terrified her. she found a lump. her mom had a bad chemo experience 20 years before, so she decided if it's cancer i'm not going to do anything about it and not going to tell anybody. we found out, it was too late. that was a matter of people not knowing enough about it. >> early detection. >> it is, it is. james, thanks. >> ladies, thank you. >> that t-shirt is hot. >> excellent on you. >> well, thank you. ford cares. thank god for ford doing this
